Today I was in meetings all day and night. I looked down at my fitness tracker only to see I had a serious amount of steps to complete. Last year I would have chalked it up to the fact that I wasn’t going to be able to meet my target. That was so 2014! Not in 2015! This year, I have set a goal to meet my daily steps every day for a minimum of 30 days. It is the Jan 14th and I have been successful the previous 13 days.
I got back to my room near 9:00 PM and decided I would simply take a walk. It ended up being a very long walk. Every time I looked down, I saw that I was inching closer to my target. I went even further than I expected. I got back to the hotel and still had a little bit to go. I then decided to take the stairs instead of the elevator. Boy, now that was tough. After a brisk walk I was already sweating even though it is not that cold outside. Then climbing the stairs was pretty tough.
A little more walking and I looked down and I had met my goal. Sweet! The main thing is to set a goal, keep if focused on your mind, and do whatever it takes to achieve it.
With peace and gratitude,
